By using Nielsen Transfer Screws, blind screw holes may be transferred to new work in a fraction of the time compared to other methods.


Simply insert the transfer screws in the holes to be transferred, invert, and strike a sharp blow to record the true circle and true center on the mating surface.

Nielsen Transfer Screws are precision hand tools that eliminate the guesswork when transferring threaded, drilled or reamed holes. Machined to high precision for uniform and dependable accuracy making duplicating hold patterns and setting locations to threaded holes rapid and precise. Nielsen Transfer Screws are a "headed" screw that feature a uniform shoulder height for quick and easy setup. Multiple hole patterns can be transferred simultaneously.

  • Sixteen sizes are available from No. 10 to 3/4 in. 

  • Duplication of screw holes is done efficiently and accurately, without damage to matrix or new work. 

  • Screws can be used repeatedly and in multiples. 

  • Eliminates the hassle of losing layout marks from drill chips or drilling fluids erasing or mutilating a layout made with dividers. 

  • Error is eliminated, as every hole is an exact transfer of the original work. 

  • Long life is assured as Nielsen Transfer Screws are case-hardened. 

  • An accurate drilling template is formed because the center penetrates the work to depth of .010in to .38mm, and leaves a witness diameter, registering a perfect duplicate of the original holes. 

  • Holes of various sizes may be transferred in the same plane, at one impression, as Nielsen Transfer screws have a uniform shoulder height for all sizes. 

  • Unlike headless setscrews, some times used for this purpose, Nielsen Transfer Screws are uniform in height with accurate circles and centers.

  • No guesswork, no waste of time lining screws up for even height. Nielsen Transfer Screws are self-aligning.
